Samsung Galaxy S4 the World's Best Smartphone, Says Impartial Review

By Gary Cutlack on at

An independent arbiter of how good things are has declared the Samsung Galaxy S4 the best smartphone of them all, with the device dethroning LG's Optimus G in the Consumer Reports mobile rankings.

The non-profit site says a mixture of Samsung's decent camera, glove-friendly touch screen, split-screen display, software optimisations and general performance mean it's a worthy "Best Phone In The World Ever" award winner, with the reviewers having nothing in the way of negative opinions about Samsung's latest model.

Given that the S4 has been slagged off on telly by some men who had their lives, careers and health ruined by its internal storage limitations, and everyone we know seems to prefer the HTC One, we're not so sure. [Consumer Reports via BGR]
